GAPA Prescribes Personal Attention for Patients
More than 2,000 Georgia physician assistants are dedicated to ensuring patients across our state receive the personal attention they need from their medical care providers. As part of physician-directed teams, PAs offer increased patient accommodation. They make healthcare more accessible and take time to answer patients' questions and educate them on health issues. Since 1975, the Georgia Association of Physician Assistants has been dedicated to ensuring the professional achievement of Georgia's PAs by providing active representation, continuing medical education and opportunities for personal growth.
